Early recorded Flannerys in Ireland (8th - 18th Centuries)

12th Century

  • Reginald O'Flanura, Bishop of Emly, Counties Limerick and Tipperary 1192 - 1197

    The eminent seventeenth century historian, Sir James Ware, recorded Reginald O'Flanura as Bishop of Emly. This has been substantiated by Fasti Ecclesiae Hibernicae (based on Diocesan Registries, Chapter Books of Cathedrals, etc.) which records that Reginald was Bishop in 1192 when his cathedral was burned down. He died in 1197.
